All types of risks, ecological, natural disasters or the ones provoked by human activity, no matter whether they have local, regional or global range, all of them affect a human being. The combination of economic, political, social factors and the particular characteristics of a person or group and their situation determine their capacity to predict, prepare, respond, resist and recover from the impact of threats they experience. On the one hand, the technological, economic and social development brings about the changes and risks (opportunities and threats), make the security environment less and less predictable and people more vulnerable to all hazard. On the other hand, the same technological economic and social development is indispensable to resolve, as U. Beck claims, the side-product of man-made actions. These intricate dependencies between security, development and human rights and well-being are the realm of human security which is reflected in its strategic goals, research, practical programs and projects on global scale. The human-centric approach in security seems the most effective as all these risks we should respond to are detrimental to human population and to a future in general.
